    10497 Galaxy Explorer 90th anniversary set

    I picked up 2 copies yesterday in a store. Hope to start building some time this week.

    @Navy Trooper Fenson if you could quickly come up with the what’s missing list for building all 3 from 2 sets that would be great 👍

    @Corellian Corvette - I want to build all 3 too. I haven’t ordered the set yet as I’ve got the chance of going to an actual store this weekend, so will pick one up then. We’ll actually I might pick up 2. The plan I thought about is to arrange all the pieces neatly. Then put the pieces for the mid-sized in a pile. Then repeat for the small one but make 2 piles, one for parts still from the bin (not used in the mid) and a second pile for common pieces. I think there may be quite a few parts missing in the substructure and some of the details like the parts to make the arrows. But I’m thinking a brick link order would still end up cheaper than buying 3. I guess the biggest question is how many parts that are unique to this set, so the printed parts, are common to both the mid and small ship. This would make it expensive to get the extra parts. For the ship number I was planning on using custom stickers to number them all correctly.

    Has anyone worked out what extra parts you need if you buy 2 Galaxy Explorers and want to build all 3 models at the same time?
  5. This one ? Lego on top … Lego on the shelf, and Lego on the bottom (SW helmet collection) … and clothes squeezed in between. The other side is my partners side for clothes
  6. So here’s the “set up” I struggle with … my desk has 2 computers on it, my work laptop and my own iMac. What desk space I have remaining is for Lego building and storing Lego builds (currently occupied by my 1979 Space box, the chassis of the UCS Porsche and my WIP Eunos chassis. On the shelf (my main Lego display space in the house, yes it’s a 1m long IKEA shelf) you’ll see Brickmonkey’s mx5, the new buzz Lightyear set and some classic space. Under the desk in boxes are UCS Falcon, Slave One & Landspeeder, Kit’s UCS Tantive and then the 4 big boxes contain Lego city space port, Mars and lunar sets along with TLG Benny sets and a few Creator space sets. My Technic loose stuff is in the various tubs you’ll see on the floor, and the cupboard next to it which looks like this … the top shelf contains classic space, the rest is Technic. And then not forgetting this … Where you’ll see on top of the cupboard is more sets (including the Ultimate Technic cars) and the left side of the cupboard on the shelf it’s all random Lego sets and the bottom of the “door area” are the SW Helmets … plus of course my clothes! theres also some random Lego in the loft ! so as you can see I’m very jealous of @Jim and @kbalage with their rooms!
  7. I’m dead jealous of all that space that you have @Jim. I’ll take a photo of where all my Lego is stored at some stage and show you how I’ve over extended my collection a bit too far !
  8. Yes a non vehicle would be good. In the good old studded days of Technic they used to build machines and not just cars, bikes and trucks.
  9. We’ve not done Walkers before … no wheels or tracks but make a vehicle that can move
  10. Dec - Jan is always an issue for me, and I assume for others too. We’re normally away for at least a week, often 2 seeing family over the Christmas and new year period.
  11. Wow, such a great B model. I’m a big Bat fan and the Burton batmobile is definitely my favourite/era.
  12. @nico71 yes I watched your snow runner video 😎 and I’m waiting for the bodywork one to see how you tackle it. Seeing what you’ve written above reassures me that I’m working along the right lines for the bodywork. Expect a potential update from me here in a month or so … told you all this would be a slow burn !
  13. So yes it’s been a long time since I’ve done an update on here, personally I blame @Jim for TC22, but also life and the real Eunos I have that currently has no interior. Only a minor update but with a problem that I’m not sure how to solve. So I watched a YouTube video from @nico71 and from that I transferred the blueprint onto my work pc so I could do this. The wheels and tyres really match well, the wheel to rim ratio looks good and amazingly they’re also about the right width for what I want. so you’ll see I’ve built a basic frame to get the wheelbase and here is my next problem. I get a half stud in my wheelbase. So do I keep it? Or shorten or lengthen the wheelbase by half a stud? I’m going to leave designing the chassis and what goes on it till the end, if it’ll just naturally evolve. But first some bodywork, but I’m unsure where to start. I think my plan is to rough something out with flat panels and liftarms to enable me to see it’s size in my hands. Then pick an area of the car and refine it and work like that. Or are there better suggestions from the seasoned Supercar creators ? I already know the headlight assembly will have to be System built to get a nice thin headlamp cover, the light and the mechanism all done. who knows when the next update is ? Holidays and putting the interior back in the real MX-5 come first.

    The purple helmet wasn’t cheap either
